Association of Independent School Librarians

Membership fees:

AISL membership is open only to librarians who work in independent school libraries. We also have a special rate for retired librarians, and for students in MLS programs. We are not affiliated with ALA, but many members do hold both memberships. Due to our low membership fee, we do not pro-rate; the yearly membership runs from Sept 1st - Aug 31st. 

AISL Membership: $30.00 

AISL Retired Librarians Membership:  $15.00 

Student Librarian Membership:  $15.00

Membership includes:

  • Access to an active listserv linking independent school libraries across North America, complete with an archive to past discussions.
  • Access to an active wiki that is maintained by the independent school librarian members, who store documents relevant to best practices and have ongoing discussions.

When making a decision about library philosophies, policies, products or services, it is invaluable to have immediate access to so much expertise. AISL members have the collective wisdom to access when investigating a product new to their school. The AISL membership list is never sold nor shared for product promotions. Vendors are encouraged to scan the schools we represent on the schools tab.

Attending the annual conference is an added benefit of membership; check here for the list of upcoming conference locations. Members are also encouraged to attend the AISL Summer Institute.
